About Ecuador

Kids growing up in poverty in Ecuador face many serious difficulties, including life-altering malnutrition, extreme generational poverty, staggering unemployment rates and poor educational services.

That's why we focus on providing vibrant nutrition programs, special training to guide youth in managing finances, employment programs and scholarships to help teens find jobs, and a broad offering of educational assistance from tutoring to books.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
